    My idea (and I think someone else said that as well) would be
    to either provide enough stubs in the PCI code to not have to worry about
    CONFIG_PCI, or to keep the existing (2.2) situation, with additional
    dependencies for drivers that are PCI only, like

    dep_tristate ' PCI NE2000 support' CONFIG_NE2K_PCI $CONFIG_PCI

    For 2.5, the entire config-system must go, as it is way to limited for the
    current kernels.
